Researcher biography

Ayomi received her Bachelor of Science in Geochemistry at University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka in 2014. She completed her PhD focusing on the transformation characteristics of metals built-up on urban road surfaces and its impacts on stormwater quality at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2018. After completing her PhD, she joined as a research associate in the Water and Environmental Engineering research group at QUT, and engaged in a range of research projects related to environmental pollution and water quality impacts due to immerging contaminants such as heavy metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). As a postdoctoral research fellow at QAEHS, she is interested in developing methods and identification of immerging organic contaminants in different environmental media.
